What does the procedure entail?
What can I expect?
Who is a good candidate?
The procedure is performed on an outpatient basis, meaning you can go home the same day of surgery. You get to pick the size you want to be when Dr. Gurley helps you envision the possibilities. The incisions produce a scar around the areola, and down from the areola to the crease underneath the breast. There is a limited scar beneath the breast depending on how much excess skin is removed. All stitches are dissolvable and drains are not needed. Even with the post surgical healing you will be able to enjoy more proportionate and age appropriate breasts right away.
Following the surgery, there is no limitation on range of motion of the arms or showering. You may drive and return to work or school within 24 hours. We recommend that you refrain from running, jogging or any strenuous exercise for 4-6 weeks. You will quickly enjoy more perky, lifted, smaller breasts that are more comfortable and will allow you to wear the clothing you've always wanted.
You may want to consider this procedure if:
You are unable to exercise and play sports because your breasts get in the way or make you uncomfortable; Your breasts are "droopy" or uneven: You get unwanted attention making you self conscious; You have back, neck, or shoulder pain; You have experienced rashes or chafing underneath your breasts, or You have difficulty finding bras, clothes or swim suits to fit.
Real Artistic Outcomes
Patients who see Dr. Gurley for adolescent breast reduction find a range of benefits from the procedure. Dr. Gurley lightens the weight of the breasts while repositioning and lifting them higher on the chest wall. This means your bra doesn't have to work so hard. Patients are able to exercise with greater comfort and wear dresses, swimsuits and other clothing that did not fit well prior to surgery. Dr. Gurley will consult individually with you to find your perfect size.
